- Many clothes
- Lots of food
- Scuba Gear

Human Impacts on the Deep Sea
Humans dump industrial waste, sewage, munitions, and nuclear waste into the sea. They also mine fisheries and sea bed energy resources.
Resources in the Deep Sea
Some resources found in the deep sea are Nickel, Copper, Cobalt, Oil, Manganese, Platinum, Molybdenum, Lead, Zinc, Gold and Silver.
Abiotic and Biotic Facotrs in the Deep Sea
Abiotic factors are non-living conditions which influence where and how plants and animals live. Some Abiotic factors are sunlight, temperature, currents and nutrients available. Biotic factors are living parts of the ecosystem. Like Plants, Animals, Fungi, Algae and Bacteria.
Invasive Species in the Deep Sea
Invasive Species are organisms with negative effects on the ecosystem. One in the Deep Sea is the Limpet.
Water Movement in the Deep Sea
The Deep Sea doesn't have any fast moving sections of water. This happens because it's so far down that currents can't go that far down. The just move the water a little not affecting the organisms that live there.
What we can do to help
Recycle stuff appropriately, don't throw trash into the ocean and make trash companies pick up trash more than once a week.
